Default Another Report In Pictures

Just returned from my annual Spring trip from Pennsylvania. My son and I spent Tuesday April 14 through Saturday April 18th in the park working from Townsend. As always, the LRO staff were helpful and courteous. We fished Abrams, Middle Prong, East Prong, Bradley Fork and Oconaluftee.

I kept a "live" journal for my friends at www.paflyfish.com at this link:

Here are the fish pics I pulled from my journal:

From Metcalf Bottoms




From Abrams



From about 3 miles upstream of Metcalf





Above Elkmont



From Oconaluftee just near park boundary


Bradley Fork above Smokemont

Some beautiful fish there, Jack.

Did you see what was going on with the "Prescribed Burn" while you were in the Metcalf area? It was pretty smokey driving through that area. Like Trey, I got almost up to the park boundary from Wears Valley before being turned around.

Light Hendrickson/Red Quill on most of the Little River, a few March Browns were starting and small Grey or Black Caddis, 16-18. There were also Blue Quills or BWOs.

Regarding the Prescribed Burn, as we left the area just below Metcalf Picnic area, I took this shot of the hillside above the river:

Mihai, I would be happy to discuss fly fishing with you, but have no way to contact you. I tried to send you an e-mail at a hotmail account that I saw in your profile, but it was returned undeliverable. If you want to leave an e-mail address on this board, feel free and I will respond. Or, if you can see my e-mail address in my profile, you can send me a note from a valid e-mail account.
